Fixed In Version: ipsec-tools-0.6.5-14.el5_5.4 Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
When dumping the pfkey database the kernel used to return only part of the database due to the small socket buffer size. When racoon was deployed on a system with a large number of network security policy entries, the racoon coould not find all of the security policy entries in the database. The updated package supports a new configuration option pfkey_buffer to the racoon.conf file that allows to set the buffer size as appropriate for the deployment requirements.
